When you’re on the hunt for a new home, it might be faster to scan the market to find one for sale as opposed to starting from scratch. While this is convenient in some respects, we think there’s a considerable advantage to building an Asheville custom home. To begin with, at this time we are seeing that there are very few houses on the market as folks are feeling unwilling to sell. On top of that, there are a lot of people looking to purchase homes, driving up the competition and pricing. So why not consider taking another route and building a home? Let’s get into all the benefits.
First and foremost, design: You are in control of each room and every aspect of your living space when you choose to build. What do you want your home to feel like? How can each space be tailored to fit your specific needs? Are you planning on starting a family and want your space to grow with you? Want a home gym or an extra-large kitchen? All this lies within your control when you work with a team of Asheville custom home builders. We love helping clients realize the full power of building their own home by taking advantage of all the ways they can develop their space to support their lifestyles!
Fresh start: When your home is finished and you’re ready to move in, everything is new. You’ve been able to select all of your appliances and you won’t need to spend time repairing any part of your living space. Additionally, you won’t need to spend as much on maintenance when everything is still new. And you won’t find wear and tear from a previous owner, either.
Intentional design elements: Want to use alternative energy sources? Or perhaps you would like to incorporate green features in your home to reduce your carbon footprint and increase energy efficiency? Start from the ground up and customize your home to be gentler on the environment.
Forward thinking: Overall, building your Asheville custom home is a great investment in your future. Newly built custom homes often appreciate more rapidly than other resale properties. Moreover, there are some tax advantages to building instead of buying which can help save you money.
A few parting thoughts: We know that thinking about having a home built comes with some general assumptions. There’s the concern for unexpected costs running up your budget and the worry that the builders will need to keep pushing deadlines back time and again, making your project seemingly last forever. We wanted to clear up a few of these things to help you find excitement in the prospect of choosing this option! Brock Builders founder, Chris Brock was formerly a licensed Certified Public Accountant. With that background comes a commitment to exceptional financial management and an adherence to our client’s budgets that are unseen in this industry. And while no one can prepare for the unexpected, our team of dedicated craftsmen work tirelessly to stay on schedule so your project is completed in a timely fashion!
